There was a piece of the Lunar-Reconnaissance-Orbiter-spots-the-Lunokhods story that I was intrigued by but just didn't have the time this week to investigate properly. So I sent a note about it to Nancy Atkinson in the hopes that she'd take it up. She did! Wander over to Universe Today to learn about the Lunokhod mission's International Women's Day memorials, still visible from space today.
